Sustainability & ESG

We are working to reinvent the way the world cleans by embedding sustainability across our business while we continue to focus on developing innovative solutions that solve our customers’ biggest challenges.  

Our legacy provides a unique opportunity

Our commitment to stewardship is more than a responsibility, it's an opportunity. As an industry leader, we’re uniquely positioned to improve our business and increase our commitment to sustainable practices in ways that advance our own business and help our customers achieve their sustainability goals. We already provide electrically powered equipment that reduces greenhouse gas emissions from internal combustion engines, water management solutions that reduce the water needed to clean, technology that eliminates the need for detergents or chemicals in the cleaning process, reconditioned equipment that helps to close the loop on the lifecycle of our products, and products that incorporate recycled materials minimizing virgin raw materials required during the manufacturing process. 

We know we can drive positive impact on the world's most pressing global challenges by continuing and expanding what we've always done, and partner with our customers by helping solve their current and future cleaning challenges. 

And we have great plans for the future

To achieve this, our sustainability framework, "Thriving People. Healthy Planet.", starts with the foundational interconnection between people and planet – because we know our business cannot be successful without a healthy planet and thriving people.

This framework serves as a lens for the bold goals we have, and will set, align our plans, integrate sustainability into the business, and measure our progress across the six impact areas listed below.

We believe that by working towards ambitious commitments together with our stakeholders, we can achieve our business goals while we help people thrive and contribute to a healthier planet. We invite you to join us.

As a market leader with a reputation for innovation, I’m confident that we can work toward ambitious commitments to effect change on a global scale. By embedding sustainable thinking into how we work, we’ll continue to deliver solutions that help our customers solve their biggest challenges and meet their sustainability targets. Working within our own business and with our stakeholders, we will help people thrive and contribute to a healthier planet.
